6:02pm
tony kovaleski broke this latest piece of information earlier today. you have learned that the three teens are out of the detention center? >> that is correct. according to two well played sources close to the case the teenagers accused were released mid day on saturday. there were several conditions connected. they are all under house arrest. we have learned all three are required to wear ankle bracelets as standard part of house arrest. they have hired an attorney and have filed a wrongful death suit. attorneys for the three young men have provided a statement saying much of what has been reported is inaccurate. getting more time to build a case. this morning a judge gave 30-year-old karla hernandez two weeks to review the evidence in her case. she is accused of kidnapping an 11-month-old baby and asked for more time before entering a plea. police say she kidnapped a baby

6:04pm
sheriff's department is pulling out. the state is stepping in to pick up the slack. nbc bay area's jodi hernandez is now in oakland. >> the chp says it plans to amp up efforts after the almeida county sheriff's department put the brakes on the patrols here. the sheriff says patrolling oakland is risky business and they are simply not getting paid enough to cover their costs. almeida county sheriff's deputies spent the time behind the wheel. they might not be putting the skills on the streets of oakland any longer. >> we are simply trying to renegotiate better terms for the county cht. >> reporter: the sheriff's deputy ended the patrol of oakland on saturday after failing to come to an agreement
6:05pm
with the city to extend the contract. the city says the wounding of a deputy made them realize the short term agreement didn't cover long term expenses. >> we are doing this on overtime. >> i'm upset that we weren't able to work out the dispute on the payments without interrupting the important services. >> reporter: oakland city council member who co authored the proposal said she was stunned to learn deputies had halted their oakland patrols but the city announced the california highway patrol has agreed to pick up the slack. says oakland's under staffed police department needs all the help it can get. >> the citizens are suffering every day because of the crime problem in oakland. we cannot pause. we cannot be interrupted in trying to lower the crime in oakland.
6:06pm

6:11pm
criminal background check. but the playing field is not necessarily the same at all centers. staff at short term dropoff child care centers often found in gyms are not required to do any criminal background checks because parents are considered to be on the premises. the state does not mandate staffing ratios either. >> i just noticed that it is too out of hand, too many children for the amount of people they have watching 20 kids at a time. >> she was surprised to see how young the staff was. >> the kids you take care of, the little ones, they are kids themselves. >> which is why state senator is establishing new legislation. ceo also supports the proposed bill. >> everyone should play by the same rules. if you are caring for kids you should meet the standards of
6:12pm
care. >> reporter: she says the changes will help protect kids. >> anytime that a teacher or adult is left alone with children they should have their background checks. >> reporter: because the business of keeping kids safe is not child's play. some gyms already meet the proposed new requirements including 24-hour fitness. we checked with them and they say they already do criminal background checks for their child care center employees and they also require that those employees be at least 18 years old. reporting live in san jose, marianne favro, nbc bay area news. city attorney dennis herrera is launching an investigation int allegations that nevada dumped patients. petitioning nevada for documents pertaining to the practice.

6:16pm
92 in santa teresa. 91 in napa and 70 in santa cruz. the interesting thing about temperatures right now is not where it continues to be warm like in the south bay with plenty of low 80s. santa cruz 59 degrees. a surge of marine layer and clouds is cooling you off dramatically and that will be impacting everyone with huge cool downs coming our way this week. let's get a live look outside of our sky camera network. in san jose it is clear. not a lot in the way of gusty winds. in palo alto we are suffering with a little bit of haze in the atmosphere. and then you are noting some of the marine layer trying to build up at the immediate coast line. emeryville a clear shot back to san francisco. let's get you into the forecast here. we have high pressure offshore going to stay put for at least the next 24 hours giving us one more warm day. eventually that will weaken and we will get the on shore flow
